In this episode I answer a question about whether or not I think corporate social responsibility (CSR) gives companies license to do bad.
It is a question with roots in the recent Freakonomics Podcast Does Doing Good Give You License to Be Bad? () and the rebuttal by Chris Jarvis on the Engage for Good Podcast Does Doing Good with CSR Really Give Companies, Employees License to be Bad?
As always, we hope you find this series engaging, and if you do, please remember to like, share, comment, and SUBSCRIBE!
